9:11am
9:12am
>> welcome back. the time is 9:12. we have an east wind at 8 miles per hour. it has been a rainy start for us on this sunday morning. nen again, it is -- then again, it is welcome rain. this was a good soaking rain.
9:13am
the heaviest stuff is left out to the+ -- [technical difficulties] if we get a little sun, we will make it into the 70's later on. 61 at parkton and 63 at this hour in chestertown. as soon as the system goes off the coast, things start to improve. monday and tuesday, quiet conditions. the seven-day forecast in a second.
9:14am
an update on hurricane igor i suspect the hurricane center will bump that up on the 11:00 a.m. advisory to category 2. they think it will come close to the islands by this time next weekend, so igor is a storm we'll have to keep an eye on. high temperatures between 70 and 75. when we get sun to break through the clouds -- looks like a nice start to the workweek. slight chance for rain on tuesday. the next chance for significant rain will be at the end of the week late thursday and into friday.
9:15am
i do think it will clear up. >> a turbulent economy. our financial expert is here. >> the queen of effortless chic is here. how to look great and spend less. >> first a look at ents going on around town. stay with us.
9:16am
9:17am
9:18am
>> welcome back. good morning. >> it is a pleasure to be here. >> what are the common mistakes that people make in today's retirement planning? >> well, the biggest mistake is not saving enough as we are constantly reminded by all the polls. the second biggest mistake is not saving efficiently. we've been told for years all we need to do is tax defer, tax defer and then we'll be in a lower tax bracket when we retire. if you want to be in a lower tax bracket, you need to plan for it. >> people are saying, i don't expect anything in this economy. >> you need to start early. and a little bit goes a long way when you are starting early. so for somebody age 20, putting aside $50 a month makes a
9:19am
significant difference because of all the years of compounding. when you get to be 50 and 55, now is becomes a lot harder. my message would be to start early and a little bit goes a long way. >> most people with all the retirement in their 401-k or i.r.a. it is tax defered, that is unfortunate because every dollar you are going to spend is going to be factioned. you want to put it in three different spots so that it will be tax-free, your rotha i.r.a., and tax defered, rur had 401-k, and your retirement savings, so you can draw from all three places. >> a lot of people have one of those. we need all three of those? >> you need all three of those. we don't know what will happen with taxes, but if we do nothing, taxes will go up substantially, and you don't want everything in a tax defered account and have it all taxed.
9:20am
we go means testing, and you could be losing part of it. you want to have it in all sources so we can design how much tax you will pay by being able to draw from the tax-free source, because there is no tax implications. >> what else can we do? what does the i.r.s. want from us, other than money? >> i think money is enough. but they want a lot of money. we have a national debt pushing $13.5 trillion. if they could just get their hands on a third of that, that would take care of a big chunk of the national debt. >> there is something in the news a lot right now about extending the push tax cuts. why would people need to know about this, or why should or shouldn't this happen? >> it probably is the -- one of the biggest factors that's affecting our economy right now. we could talk about a lot of different things, but the uncertainty of knowing how much
9:21am
taxes you are going to pay or the uncertainty of health care reform has a pretty negative impact on our economy. what we want to do in the next 3 1/2 months is prepare as if taxes are going up. so we have 3 1/2 months that we know tax rates will be low. we don't know what will happen after the beginning of 2011. >> you are back to saving once again. >> saving tax efficiently. >> there is the child tax credit, there's marriage penalty money that could be saved in that? >> it is onerous. i think the numbers are a $3.8 trillion tax incentive over 10 years. that will affect everybody. what the president has repeated is he's only going to raise money on people raising $250,000 which the child care credit would be in there.
9:22am
my best guess -- is this is a guess -- is they won't be able to decide and they will look at it next year under a new congress. >> that tax credit is $1,000 now. >> right. so that's 50% of tax increase. >> up again, the name of the book is the "new three-legged stool." thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> it is time to think about the lawn again. >> it is. it is the best time of year to fertilize and seed your lawn. >> speaking of seeding, i have a good idea.
9:23am
9:24am
9:25am
>> good morning, and welcome to your "sunday gardener." we're going to talk about lawns, because we got some mail on that. >> we have gotten a million phone calls about this? after scott's fungus control, and it looks worse. i think it has not as much to do with the product as it does the weather. we came out in june and july with the dryest season we've ever had. we've had so much in august, between crab grass and weeds.
9:26am
>> so fall is the single best time to renovate your lawn. >> you can get rid of the weeds, get the grass established before winter and by spring you have a healthy lawn and then you can put the crab grass preventer down to prevent the stuff from coming up. >> what you first want to do is apply weed control. this will take care of most of your weeds. >> and you are going to have wait about two weeks and then you can go on and reseed your lawn. >> so we have to act now? >> yes. when the weeds are up, it is the best time to get rid of them. when you have some of this coming up accident go for it. >> what about the crab grass there now? grass will dry now, right?
9:27am
i would get the rest of the lawn into good shape so that next next season you could put that -- can you pull up the crab grass and put regular seed down there now? >> you could even spray. but i'm just not sure i worry about it too much now. the main thing is to get your lawn in shape -- plenty of compose. leave that. aerate your lawn. get some air to the root system. if you look along your driveway, you usually see your worst weeds. >> and hot sun. >> and there is competition going on with trees.
9:28am
lift everything up as much as you can. we recommend you put something down to keep it from drying out. grass seed will be packed with water two or three times a day. put fertilizer down. they handle -- >> so don't expect a super green lawn in october. it will bounce back. >> usually it is coming back. we have gotten enough rain that
9:29am
our lawns aren't as bad as they were in june and july. >> i have a lawn here to work on. thank you for joining us on your "sunday gardener". next sunday we'll be back with more about your garden. we'll see you then. >> and if you have a garden question, send it to "sunday gardener" wbal-tv 2800 hooper maryland, 21211. you can also going online to www.wbaltv.com. >> a shopping guru says never pay retail again. how to get more with less. >> first, with the primaries just days away, we have a "-- special report. >> sunday forecast coming up in just a few minutes.
9:30am
9:31am
>> let's take a look outside. >> the rain is starting to taper off. this wasn't a bad thing this morning. i know it is the weekend and all, but we really needed the rain, and we got a good soaking out of it this morning. most of the heavy stuff is east of us, delaware and the beaches,
9:32am
and rain showers and sprinkles. it will be dry as we head into the afternoon. mostly cloudy later on today with high temperatures in the low 70's. seven-day forecast and the latest on hurricane igor coming up in just a few minutes. for now, to the news desk. >> insurgents killed by troops in eastern afghanistan. the alliance intelligence reports indicate the commander was planning for rocket attacks during the parliamentary elections. the taliban has vowed to attack and warned afghans not to participate in what it called a sham vote. >> the latest ward from iran is that sara shourd will be released on $500,000 bail because of health problems. an iranian prosecutor says the
9:33am
other two americans must remain in custody. the three are accused of illegally crossing into iran. the families say they are wr they were hiking. >> a leading expert on race and politics walters has died. walters spent 5025 years at howard university. he suffered from lung cancer. he died friday. he was 72 years old. h >> it is time for our "sunday morning g & a." join join us this morning is ross golstein from the maryland state board of elections. we have some hotly contested races out there, and i would imagine some early good turn-out . we had 77,000 or 7 -- excuse me,
9:34am
7,000 people vote early, so it will probably turn out to be around 8% of the total surnout that we see for this election. >> for those that have opted to vote, lets talk about the things we need to remember. if you are not registered to vote can you still register. >> the closing deadline is -- it is too late for this election. >> there are voters overseas or using an absentee ballot. how do you go through that process and what is the deadline for doing that? >> the question -- the deadline to have it sent to you as passed, but you can go to the board of elections in your county and get an absentee ballot and make sure you mail it by election day. >> by tuesday. >> what if someone wants to change their party affiliation. >> that is the same dead deadline as the voter
9:35am
registration, so that was three weeks ago. >> if you are going to be out of town, you talk about getting your absentee ballot in. can you -- how can you see a sample ballot is you want to prepare ahead of time for who you want to vote for. >> first of all, we mailed them to all the voters. go to www.elections .state.us, and from our home page there is a link to finding out your registration status and also they will have a copy of your sample ballot there. >> what do you need to bring with you in terms of identification, and also is it ok to bring children along? >> as long as the schirn are 13 or yirning they are allowed to go into the polls with their parents. as far as identification, you are only required to have
9:36am
identification under certain circumstances. whether you are required to bring identification is listed there. generally a driver's licesi sense is listed for verification. >> can you vote at the same place you voted foffer early voters? >> no, once selection date starts, you are back at the early polling places. >> so definitely go to the web site. >> are all polling places acceptable to people with disabilities? >> i think in maryland we're about 99% of our polling places are accessible. it is something we are proud of. if there are access yibblet issues, you can find out that information. if there are barriers or information about access yibblet that are part of your polling place, that will be listed on the we web site. >> are in any other myths out there you want to dispel before people go through this process on tuesday? >> no, i think people are ready to do vote.
